Mrs. Smith passed away on the 13th this year?
I didn’t know Fab Newman was an LHS alumni. Loved that guy on JP Patches. May he RIP.
I actually have a photo of me and JP Patches, not Bob unfortunately, when the new Lynnwood Branch building of Seafirst Bank had their grand opening and JP and Gertrude came to it.
I worked with Bob Newman a couple of times at KCTS, we talked about the fun he had playing those characters, I told him how funny I thought it was that Miss Smith the delivery man had such a low voice . He was such a great guy
Loved the show and all the characters. Never another one like it.
